If you take just a little bit of time and planning you can save a ton of money! Here's a few tips:
- Traditional Coupons: Each Sunday I buy the paper. Sunday is the best day for coupons and it really doesn't take that much time to clip them out, 15-20 minutes tops. Plus you get the sale papers for all the grocery stores and Walmart, Target, Walgreens, etc. so you can see who has the best deals each week.
- Online Coupons: I check online each week also for coupons. You simply check which ones you'd like and print them out for the store. My favorites are Coupons.com, CoolSavings.com, and CouponMom.com
- Store Savings Card: I don't leave home without my Kroger or BiLo card. You'll almost always save money even if you don't have your regular coupons. And if you do, you can save double with card savings stacked on top of your paper coupons.
- Online Coupons on your Store Savings Card: Sites like Shortcuts and Cellfire will send coupons directly to your store savings card once you register. You choose your coupons, they're sent to your card. You can even print out your shopping/coupon list to take to the store with you.
With a little work and planning you can save a ton of money and you might even find some fabulous new products that you love. Either way, it's a win-win!
